Very nice setting for our Sunday brunch to celebrate our friend's wedding. Avoid the coffee ... tasted like instant ... and go with the Cucumber Calamansi Mule instead. My Belgian Waffle was light and tasty. We were never rushed and had plenty of time to celebrate our friend's milestone.

It was family friendly with something everyone could eat from age 1 to adult. Happy hour drinks were good!

We stopped here on our way back from the North Shore and we arrived about 45 minutes before closing. Our waiter was friendly and efficient, getting us our drinks and appetizer quickly. My fukiake tofu sandwich was delicious, and my husband had the Korean beef sandwich. The fries were frozen, but tasty. Overall an enjoyable experience.

They've moved to a new larger location, so no more waiting in lines out the door. The food is still delicious, we particularly liked the red curry and pesto preparations of the moon fish. The aerie chicken was also good--a bit on the spicy side. We enjoyed the bread pudding and haupia sweet potato pie as well. Service is quick... More

Came for dinner based on a recommendation from a friend of the family that had been here, overall good, reasonably priced , service was good, it can get a little loud noisy echo acoustics but overall enjoyable

No real plusses to eating here but it's not going to break your bank. And for me, it's just down the street when visiting a relative, so have been three times. The last visit I ordered half spicy squid poke and half kalua pork with kale ($18). Shoulda stuck with just a full plate of the latter at $10. Dining... More

Dined here one evening. Food is very average and is really a fast food joint where everything is mass produced - my tuna was barely recognisable as fish. Price is good and staff were OK but not a place I'd rush back to - better options in town.

I did see the episode on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives and I really wanted to try the food. We went to Boots and Kimos first but they had an hour- long wait. This place had lots of seats empty and I see why. Sandwiches were ok and my fish with red curry was also good but definitely not amazing. Ambience... More

Not bad, not great, just average food. Great waitstaff - entertaining & engaging. Could use a little updating and imagination. Otherwise a good value meal but just a little lacking in imagination. Good try for the area though.

Had a great dinner Pesto Fish special was amazing. Garlic Ahi had great kick and of course their special Garlic Chicken -all excellent. Unfortunately no one tried their Red curry fish featured in Diners Drive Ins and Dives (which by the way this is none of those- it's a local gem!) Big bar and outdoor seating also available. It's worth... More
